INTERSOS and DAFI are glad to invite aspiring refugee’s filmmakers in Yemen to enter the film competition, before the short film competition closes on Monday 08 August.

The competition is open to amateur and aspiring refugee’s filmmakers in Yemen aged 18 and above and aims to spotlight on youth refugee’s issues in Yemen. The International Youth Day also gives refugee’s filmmakers in Yemen the opportunity to raise awareness and build understanding about their issues.

Winners of the first, second and third place will receive a digital camera. Aspiring refugees filmmakers are invited to submit original short film entries based on youth and their issues in their host communities; which include one of the following topics:

  • Gender Based Violence (GBV).
  • Legal problems (identification/legal documents) facing Refugees in their host communities.
  • Economic problems (unemployment) facing Refugees in their host communities.
  • Education issues facing Refugees in their host communities.

The length of short film should be between 1:30 and 3 minute maximum; films can be in any genre, including animations. Entries should be uploaded onto YouTube and the URL of the uploaded video sent together with a refugee certificate to: dafi.yemen@intersos.org  before the end of 8 August 2016.

Films may be shot with any camera including a mobile phone camera, so long as the sight and sound are clear. Submitted entries will be judged by a youth panel of film makers and artists from Yemen. They will look for evidence of originality, clarity, the ability to tell a story and filmmaking ability.
